After picking up a cheap airfare, I booked this hotel as a cheap accommodation option for 18 nights, as this was a bonus trip for me. I'd read the reviews on here and wasn't expecting much. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised.
I booked one of the superior rooms. Even though the standard ones are newly renovated, I do like a veranda to sit on, and since this was to be a relaxing holiday - and was to include Nyepi day, I wanted to have somewhere outside that was comfy to relax with a cold drink and a book.
I had no issues with the room itself. Air-con worked perfectly, small fridge was enough to keep a few drinks and some fruit in. Bathroom was just fine, and after a couple days practice I worked out how not to get the water all over the toilet - shower is over the floor and not in a tub or cubicle. :)
The included breakfast was plenty - 1 egg any way, 1 strip of bacon or ham, toast or pancake or rice, fruit or juice and coffee or tea. If it wasn't enough food, it was cheap enough to order extra, though I never felt the need.
The pool looked nice, but I'm not much of a swimmer, so never actually used it.
I had no issues with linens at all. The sheets were white and clean, as were the towels. Never a problem with getting new towels either - they were usually dropped off by lunchtime most days. I think the latest it turned up was 5pm-ish one day. The bed was very comfy though the pillows were just like I've found in every hotel in Bali - flat and hard as bricks. Purchased a new fluffy pillow for about $6 at the dept store and all was well again.
Staff were all happy and friendly - the other guests not so much, but that's no big deal.
I loved the location for a change of scenery. Fantastic eating options close by. Some good restaurants in Jl Bakungsari, but better still were the warungs outside the main entrance to the hotel. The sate warung was fantastic and cheap at around $2 for sate and nasi. A new warung opened up while there and they had a good menu with take away an option if you prefer it. Warung Nikmat next to the hotel was also a fantastic option. A short walk to Jl Raya Kuta in the evening brings you to many food carts with the best tasting food and super cheap too.
I only had need to call on reception for two things during the stay. The bathroom sink wouldn't drain away one day. It was fixed within half an hour of notifying reception staff. The other time was to help me with my bags when checking out and again I had someone there to help me within a few minutes.
I'd happily stay again either short or longer term.
